Thief Unwittingly Posted Pic Of Himself On Victim's Facebook Page

By Robert Paul Reyes

"Authorities in Georgia said they were searching for a cellphone thief who accidentally uploaded a picture of himself to his victim`s Facebook page.

The suspect apparently took a picture of himself on the victim`s phone, and due to her settings, it automatically uploaded to her Facebook page."



This criminal`s face has appeared not only on the victim`s Facebook page, but in hundreds of newspapers and thousands of Web sites. It`s only going to be a matter of time before the hapless thief is apprehended.

Even if this evildoer receives a slap on the wrist as punishment, he has already suffered the ignominy of being exposed to the entire world as a nitwit.

Most mugshots reveal the dull cunning of a predator, but in this dude`s photo I see only the blank stare of a dim and soulless lawbreaker.
